1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Bridle is shit leather for shoes. Don't do it. However, the description that NN is giving doesn't sound like bridle leather, it sounds like waxed reverse calf e.g.:
    http://foster.co.uk/our-products/bespoke-services/hunting-field-boots/black-waxed-calf-hunting-boot/
    except less polished. I still don't like the idea tbh...waxy leather is not for me. I barely ever saphir my shoes cos i hate getting any wax anywhere...
    If it's genuine bridle leather don't touch it, IMO.

    I can think of one designer who'd make boots out of literal "shit leather"...

    apparently bridle is packed with grease then waxed so as the wax wears off you get a shiny surface underneath

    @sinnedk: Nothing negative. Shell is tough as shit but Guidi is more comfy. I'm sure guidi leather is just as durable but it's like sitting on a warm recaro

    Is the contrast stiching on 995s that obvious or is it the lighting? Didnt really notice them as much from all the other pictures I've seen.
